BC: March 2016
Base 3 had a wonderful visit to St Margaret's Church yesterday as part of their RE focus this term.
Reverend Alison welcomed the children to the church and explained her role as the minister. Then the children had a guided tour of the church to look at the features of a church.
Mr Bebbington took the children up to the 'ringing chamber' to see where the bells were rung. Everyone had the opportunity, if they wished, to have a go at ringing one of the church bells — fully supervised, of course! We could hear the bells being rung, back at school!
Mr Morrison was very kind and showed the children around the organ loft. He explained that he was a pianist but was now learning to play the organ. He told them that it wasn't too late to learn something new and that you can't be perfect at something straight away. The children sang the hymn 'One more step along the world I go' while Mr Morris accompanied them. The children enjoyed having a go at playing the organ too. Great fun!
We have to thank Mr Bebbington, Mr Morris and Rev. Alison for giving up their time to help the children learn more about the church in our village.
A very big thank you, too, to Mrs Clarke for organising such an enjoyable visit to enhance their learning in RE.
